    Do you want it to look somewhat original/stock/OEM look?

    or

    Do you want it to be something "unique" (haha, it's never gonna be unique)

    For a stock lookin EF hatch, I would go with a Black

    For a different look, I think a deep forest green would look sweet, not too dark where you can't tell it's green, but not to light where it looks like a bitch basket.

    You have to remember that black shows dirt and scratches very easily, but it would still look good on an EF, just dont do any silver/metal flake, looks like shit IMO, its not a bass boat, just a nice plain gloss black.

    Then just go back to the stock red, its single-stage paint, which is cheap and easy to spray and it is really durable, the prep work for painting jambs, under hood, trunk, so on and so forth is a pain in the ass. That and the gobstopper look sucks. IMO I would just go back to OE Si red and call it a day. Altough that silver would look good. BTW you get rid of those tri-spokes yet?

    lol you dont have to tell me about all that shit,:D
    but i dont really want to go red..the black would be fine, with red jams and stuff..and yes i got rid of the trispokes..ive got bbs rims from my bros 88 bmw on there,,they look pretty good..but the tires are too tall..
    my plans are to paint the wheels black,with polished lip,lower profile tire,and paint the car black,and im set..

    for my ef i'm thinking of going with a ek type r championship white. dc2 integra has same color i think too. my dads ef is black and you have to wash it every 2 days for it to look nice and if you have a bad body it looks gross.

    I agree, a forest green would look good. Its not hard to keep clean, isn't flashy, but would still be unique for an ef.
